How do you know you are the biggest ?! And do you mean in weight ' date=' or height, or both?[/quote']

Well, I know that not all 50 people have posted their stats but those who have been posting more recently, I look forward to getting down to their starting weights!

I'm 5'4" and starting around 308 as of now.

Thanks AtlantaRed for helping me find this topic! Just to kind of recap for everyone - I've got my date - Dec. 2! I have my EGD done in a couple of weeks' date=' but that is the only test that I still need. My bmi isn't as high as some, but I've got T2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high bp and colitis. It's just too much! I can't seem to get the diet down to manage both the diabetes and the colitis AND lose weight so my goal is to get down to only having the one health issue (colitis) that I can then manage. I get so overwhelmed trying to figure it all out right now...

Just gotta keep moving forward...[/quote']

Yay, glad you found your way over! I will add you to the list with your date when I get home later.

Welcome to the group!

I also have my EGD left. I have stomach issues too. Hoping it's clear enough to move me on to the surgery!

Oh ok !! I don't like to think of anybody thinking they are the biggest because I'm close to your weight but I'm just taller so its going to look a little different..

Yaaaaaay! Thanks so much. I'll know more after my appointment tomorrow so I'll post an update as soon as I leave.
I just came back from my appointment and was told that it takes a week to hear back from insurance and then I can pick any date I want. Didn't think it would move that quickly so wow.....it's all becoming VERY real. Yikkkkkes!

APPROVED!!

Submitted to insurance 2 weeks ago. Have my pre-op appointment 11/4 and I'm told surgery being scheduled 2-6 weeks after appointment.

I'm both excited and scared.

Hi everyone! I'm Michele from Pennsylvania. My husband and I are both having surgery Friday December 13 ( thank heaven I'm not superstitious ;)) insurance gods permitting. We've done our entire 6 month program together so it's been pretty awesome. I tease the med people that we're their BOGO.

He has a lot of med problems that we're hoping will be corrected by surgery. Hes the former great condition athletic type that gained a lot when he stopped playing sports. I'm the short- always- been heavy girl who would strictly diet, get easily discouraged by minimal loss, eat, regain etc etc. Anyway- -we have ultrasound and endoscopy to go. 2 week lc diet to start black Friday and that'll be it! Nice meeting you all and best wishes! Stay strong! :)
